The Bear Necessities
May 10, 2016
Changes for 16-17
Mandy Fairbanks, LPN will transfer to LFE, as we will not have a student needing her services. It has been great getting to know Mandy this spring.
Lila Raymond is really retiring from ECSE and will only be subbing. Her position as ECSE Itinerant Teacher is posted. Please let any candidates you feel would be a good choice know about the position and let me know who they are. Big shoes to fill!!
Michelle Myers is moving on to her next chapter, her position is posted. Has it really only been two years, great work has taken place. Please let any candidates you feel would be a good choice know about the position and let me know who they are.
Alicia Stremick is setting out on her family dream, we wish her well, but again, such amazing work has taken place. Please let any candidates know that this position is posted.
Amy Hachinsky will be part time STARS and part time ECSE blended next year. Two of the STARS paraprofessionals will be absorbed into other classrooms for the half of the day she is blended. Let's show Amy and these great paraprofessionals some love and support, her planning and learning curve just grew. Great opportunity, let's make sure we support!!
We have asked that Title Only classroom students provide their own transportation, a cost of over 200,000 for 3 classrooms of students. We are currently the only district that has been approved to use title funds to pay for preschool transportation. I know that the gig is up soon, so I would rather be proactive and have a plan for this than to find out in October that we weren't approved to transport these students. This Title money would then be spent on Parent Educators, as additional classrooms are not a possibility as of now. This is pending approval, no date given as to when a decision becomes final, but I would guess June.
Committee assignments are changing significantly, very excited for a new approach next year!!
More to come, but this is a start to all the info!!
